International regulation of information technology

Updated: Jul 4, 2021

Information technology took the lead in the early 21st century. It is this type of innovation and derivatives from this industry that has gained insane popularity both in corporate use and in the daily life of absolutely every person. Since over time, such concepts as information security and data exchange began to appear, therefore, new problems arose in the implementation of this technology that require modern solutions as well as the rules and regulations for their operation. Today, one of the main documents governing the application of implementation as well as security standards related to information technology are international standards. Their presence in the organization is primarily a guarantee of quality, which gives a guaranteed impetus to development at the international level. Today we will introduce you to the key information technology and documentation standards.

Graphic technology — Prepress digital data exchange — Colour targets for input scanner calibration

ISO 12641–1:2016

The use of technology such as a scanner is widely used in offices and even at home. Since this technology has certain standards of use, and then such an international standard as ISO 12641–1: 2016 was created.

ISO 12641–1:2016 defines the layout and colorimetric values of targets for use in the calibration of a photographic product/input scanner combination (as used in the preparatory process for printing and publishing). One target is defined for positive colour transparency film and another is defined for colour photographic paper.

If your field of activity comes into contact with the professional use of this device, as well as with its production or sale, we strongly recommend that you pay attention to this international document.

Graphic technology — Prepress digital data exchange

ISO 12641–2:2019

A large number of articles have been created about the exchange of information, as well as a large number of questions related to this technology. However, the number of international standards continues to grow. One of the main standards of today for information exchange is ISO 12641–2: 2019.

This document defines a framework for advanced reflective and transmissive layouts and colorimetric values of targets for use in the calibration and characterization of image capturing devices. This document defines a framework for target creation and data reporting. This framework can be used for both ISO defined and custom targets for both reflective and transmissive use. Self-emissive targets are not covered by this document.

Graphic technology — Extensible metadata platform (XMP)

ISO 16684–2:2014

Creation of platforms related to information technology is one of the most popular activities today. Like any other system, this requires regulatory regulation that can be implemented by international standards such as ISO 16684–2: 2014.

ISO 16684–2:2014 specifies the use of RELAX NG to describe serialized XMP metadata. This applies to how conforming schemas can use the features of RELAX NG.

Since this document is quite narrow-profile, we recommend that you think about purchasing it only if your field of activity includes the use of the above technologies.

Graphic technology — Extensible metadata platform (XMP)

ISO 16684–1:2019

Like any other document regulating technology, international standards are being adapted to changes in the field of innovative development. A striking example is the international standard, which is updated in comparison with the previous documents ISO 16684–1: 2019.

This document defines two essential components of XMP metadata: — Data model: The data model is the most fundamental aspect. This is an abstract model that defines the forms of XMP metadata items, essentially the structure of statements that XMP can make about resources. — Serialization: The serialization of XMP defines how any instance of the XMP data model can be recorded as XML. In addition, this document defines a collection of core properties, which are XMP metadata items that can be applied across a broad range of file formats and domains of usage. The embedding of XMP packets in specific file formats and domain-specific XMP properties are beyond the scope of this document.

A clear technical characteristic of the technologies used in production as well as their regulation makes it possible to understand the belonging of this standard to your field of activity. If the above technologies are similar to those used by you, we recommend that you think about purchasing this document.

Minimizing risks and reaching a new level

A large variation of possible risks as well as a variety of technologies used today provide both an appropriate number of opportunities for the development of technologies to prevent negative consequences and create the requirements of a single regulatory framework that can clearly and efficiently synchronize activities related to information technology, as well as protect the organization from leakage important information. That is why we strongly recommend that you think about preventing possible risks associated with information technology in advance and take into account all aspects of their implementation. To simplify this process as much as possible, you can use international standards that the iTech team will most correctly help you choose exactly for your company.
